More About the Author

I wrote my first book when I was 8 years old. I glued photos of my cats in an exercise book and wrote about them, too. Now I am an internationally-published children's author, writing all kinds of different books. I don't write any one particular kind - Some of my books are full of facts; some are imaginary stories and some are for children under 5. I want everyone to love words, and I'm proud that all kinds of different children will find something that they like amongst my list.

I live in Bath, in the UK, and I write in a small office sandwiched between a deli and an art gallery, and positioned opposite a sweet shop. When I look up from my desk I see people sauntering by, perhaps walking their dogs or pushing buggies, picking up some shopping or chatting to their neighbours. When school ends each day I hear children laughing and shouting as they race past. It all helps me to remember why I'm sitting there in my room and what exactly I'm doing. I'm creating books for those children outside, and for families all over the world to use together.

I'm now publishing my own ebooks, under the imprint of Little Star Books.

Book Description

About the Author

I have been writing for many years in a number of different genres, from books for babies up to books for 11 year-olds plus. I like to try new things and tackle new subjects, so I don't limit myself to one type of book. One month I might be writing about history, and the next month I might be creating an imaginary story. Examples of my work have been selected for national Key Stage study in the UK, and in the USA I was commended by the Library of Congress for my work in non-fiction, which they felt encouraged reluctant readers. I work with visuals always in mind, and love the challenge of getting across information or an exciting story with good graphics to back it up. Lately I have been blogging about the craft of writing, and I've also appeared at National Book Festivals, which I think of as the most challenging thing of all to do! I get a lot of emails from children around the world, inspired by one of my books they have read, and that gives me great pleasure.

Format: Paperback
This 32-page book is an interesting and colourful introduction to the explorers of the Tudor period. Each short chapter is well-illustrated with maps, diagrams and photographs of surviving artefacts from the period. The supporting text is in a large and easy to read font, and there are “Did You Know?”, “Go and Visit” and “Key Fact” boxes in every chapter. The book is ideal for younger schoolchildren, or even interested adults, who can make use of the websites listed to dig further into the subject.
